I'm trying to do somthing in flash that just isn't working like I think it should.... I'm working in Flash4

here is the run down.

I created a button instance and added my sound to that button in the "down" state.... it begins playing when clicked...

everything is right in the world.....

but wait!
if I click it 3 times it plays 3 times! eeeek!

Thats not what I want needless to say. The sound is a 3 second sound and its pretty bad when the multiple clicks play that sound 4 times over lapping.

My question:
How can I make it where my button is "dead" after it is clicked once? This buttons ONLY purpose is to play that single sample sound.... ONCE

I tryed adding the action to the "hit" state of that button to go to a different keyframe where it would have a "dummy" button that does nothing but couldn't get that action to work....

Anyone got any ideas?
or know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
